sleeping siblings

This is Michael and Abby falling asleep while Susanna reads them a story.

I like this because it reminds me of an impressionist painting.

the treehouse tree #2

I gave this to my sister Bethanie for her birthday. There is another drawing of it here.
These are some thoughts I wrote after drawing it:

Once again I realize that I must draw as a person and not as a machine, that choosing a point of view from which to draw the tree is important, and that I can draw this tree much better then other trees because I know it, and I know it because I love it. (I grew up in, under and around it). Or perhaps I love it because I know it. Can you know truly with out also loving?

new work in progress

I had some fun last night making this. I originally was modeling an umbrella in anim8or and it turned in to this structure. This is a WIP, but I like it. Next I want to nail the composition and leave nothing to chance as I usually do. This was also the longest render-time I've had in Bryce in about 7 years at 11 hours:

I rendered it out big (5000 by 2500) and did minor color correction in OpenCanvas. Here are some actual-size details:

Also, before I imported the model into bryce, I did some playing around with a printscreen of the wire frame producing this, which looks a lot like my old green glass aesthetic of Vynclif.
